Take part in the Big British Budget

Print Friendly


On 18th March, Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne delivered his pre-election budget statement to the House of Commons. He certainly managed to grab the headlines, but did his spending decisions grab you? Or were you left thinking you’d do a much better job, if given the opportunity? Well now’s your chance.

If you disagreed with the Chancellor’s choices and you’re itching to tell him where to stick it (the budget, we mean), then the Big British Budget is for you. It’s a simple, interactive tool that lets you decide how the nation’s coffers would be shared out if it was you holding up the red leather briefcase on Budget Day.

Unlike doing the job for real, the Big British Budget tool makes it easy to share out the nation’s budget across all the key areas of Government spending – such as transport, education, healthcare, defence, older people and law and order. And once you’ve allocated the funds your way, the tool even tells you which party your decisions are most in line with.

The Budget

The Big British Budget

There’s never been a better time to have your say – after all, there’s an election just weeks away on 7th May. Grab this chance to make your views count. Towards the end of April, SunLife will make sure the findings of the Big British Budget are available for all to see.

Don’t miss this chance to show the Chancellor how it’s done. Put the country’s money where your mouth is today with the Big British Budget.

Why not share your results and challenge your friends to have a go at the Big British Budget too?
